We've been enjoying this slightly sweet bread on a daily basis for more than 10 years. A fellow teacher shared the recipe with me when my family lived in New York. I was sure to pack up the recipe when we headed west.
This coffee cake is a sure hit. I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.
This savory, delicious herb bread was a winner at my "cards and games" dinner!The pretty loaves get their deep golden color from whole wheat flour and eggs in the dough. The bread goes well with soup or salad, and it makes great toast, too.
This coffee cake is very similar to an almond crescent. It is light, flaky with a rich almond center. It's so versatile you can serve it for dessert, breakfast or brunch. This will taste like it was made from scratch at a bakery, yet the pakaged puff pastry, makes this recipe very quick and easy to make.—Gina Idone, Staten Island, New York
I love to take advantage of the wonderful citrus fruits form our state. These lovely loaves have a refreshing orange zip. I make them for our church's Christmas bazaar bake sale, and they don't last long!

Lemon and carrot flavors combine for a unique flavor sensation in this moist quick bread. I know it's a winner because I bring a loaf to our church festival every year, and I always get requests to bake it again.
Rising right out of the CT 'pumpkin patch" are these easy edible bowls shaped just like jack-o'-lanterns. To create them, our home economists thawed and molded store-bought frozen bread dough.

In Muncie, Indiana, Samantha Callahan jazzes up pound cake mix with some canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to create these sweet muffins. "They're so good, even picky eaters cannot seem to get enough," notes the substitute teacher's aide. "They're also delicious without frosting or nuts."
